What? What do you think? Do you think you will be received and accepted by the world? Do you really want to? For if they hated Me they will hate you also. Why would you even try? Why try to be accepted by My enemy? Did you forget? To be friends with the world is to be My enemy! I tell you, choose to be accepted and received by Me. I say, count it all joy. Count it joy when they persecute and despise you. For they persecuted and despised Me first. Those who give their lives to Me are mine. The world knows them NOT. The world does not and cannot hear them. Yet, I know My sheep. Yes, I call them by name. So come to Me. Be pleasing and acceptable in My sight. For as you lay your life down, take up your cross and follow Me, I see you blameless, without reproach. I see you through the blood of Christ. Yes, I see you as My beloved bride sayeth the Lord of hosts.
